despite how excited i was about my place last year, i had to move out because of housemate issues. nothing too serious, but i am living in a different house now!

i am so so so thrilled with my room you guys. i'm on the first floor -- the landlord was using it as a library before we moved in. so i have soooo much shelving!! i just wanted to share some pictures because i'm super excited:

i love how the shelving gives me a chance to really display the things that i love to use and own.

peperomia, some palms, zz plant, snake, pothos, aglaonema, alocasia, coffee plant, rubber tree, dracena, nerve plant, some philodendrons


pothos, zz, snake are really good plants for beginners in low light situations.

looking for care-tags recommended couches. ikea's offerings were kind of underwhelming and i'm not hip to many other furniture stores.

@ptozzi probably a max of around $750, looking for a fabric couch with that'll seat three. not looking for a sectional or a fold out either.

i'm subletting from someone in Queens who has a big succulent in the corner of the room; a stray cat named Moji, and a wi-fi network named after the stray cat; and a little tarantula that lives on the bedside table

and now whenever i listen to the song Queen of Cans and Jars (which occurs often) i think of this foster home for less-communicative lifeforms

Not a huge fan of SANAA in general but this space seems really amazing.

EDIT: Excuse my laziness. SANAA is an architecture office.

EDIT2: I think plants are like good music, you don't need an argument for them. It's just beautiful, it doesn't need any further rationalizations.

Anyone here sleep on a futon? I feel like I might spring for it in my first room because I like the firmness of the one I'm sleeping on now . . . and because it seems cheaper.

The only worry that I have atm is that it could make any taller pieces of furniture seem out of place. C/t - your thoughts?

These are all just "really large rooms" Ryan what's the point.

Anyway, not sure why anyone needs to think about furniture anymore when we have the cheatcodes for interior design. Buy some books, put them wherever, buy some plants, put them wherever. Solved. No one will come over anyway because everyone over the age of 30 is in a long term relationship and locked into the netflix lifestyle (everyone under the age of 30 can't afford a space that they're allowed to customise meaningfully)

Having a lot of plants and books is cute until you go to your other yuppy friend's house and find, as I did last night, that THEY have a bunch of plants and books too, and they are ALSO cooking out of Persiana because they can't be bothered with Jerusalem. Then what? Feel superior because they're playing the new Vampire Weekend through their Sonos whereas you were listening to bespoke sound cloud rappers through your Amazon Echo?

This is not a game you win without spending more than the other guy. Opt out as soon as possible and eat off paper plates. Trust me. I'm trying to work out how to budget for a new kitchen and it's a fate worse than death.

You cannot just buy good second hand architecture off Yahoo.jp

moving in this weekend to a room i'm really excited about. nothing special I guess, just a box, but it's got beautiful pristine wood floors. i really want to put energy and creativity into organizing and decorating it, especially as the last couple of places i lived weren't very conducive to decoration or organization. besides this thread, where have you guys been going for (at least semi-practical) flintstone and guidance as you decorate?

I'm super lucky that I live in an area with some really awesome flea markets/co-ops where I've found most of my furniture/objects. that's honestly where I get most of my flintstone, since I've kind of been limiting myself to stuff that's used/cheap/local. If you can do it, I recommend not buying stuff/decorations off the internet.

I love the Beams at Home 2 book that someone sent me for a care-share. Tons of awesome ideas in there. I like to use it to find solutions to specific "problems" like shoe storage or like lamp orientation, etc. I also check out Apartment Therapy every so often. I love the House Tour content. Some of it is extremely ridiculous but it's fun to click around. I also follow a bunch of creative people on IG that aren't necessarily into interior design, but have good taste and it comes through in their working/living spaces.

I find amy sedaris's apartment incredibly inspiring:

i'm a chump so i own the margaret howell houses book

i'm also lucky enough to live in southern california (at least for another couple of weeks...) so regular visits to the case houses and palm springs is always real good.

Finally moved into a one bedroom apartment where I don't have plans to up and leave cities in the next year or so. My girlfriend will hopefully live here more too. I've started investing in decent stuff and it's pretty great. I'm liking where the living room is going so far (sorry for the fake plant). Any tips or ideas?

The bedroom and dining room are...not quite there yet so far
